Neat Ripple Blanket WIP

Standard

I’ve been making rather slow progress on the Neat Ripple. I was thinking I’d wait to show you a photo once I’d done a stripe in each colour, but you’d have been waiting too long!

However, I’m actually pleased with the look of the stripes and colours so far, so it’s a good thing I persevered to find the best project.

It’s been a busy week, I’ve had extra shifts, and we’ve weighed and counted every darn thing in the store. We’re still in the middle of putting everything back to rights – many bolts of fabric are still horizontal instead of vertical, but that’s what happens when you’re trying to do the job while the store is open and with constant interruptions.

I have the next couple of days off, thank goodness, because home stuff is calling me.

Ds3 has been dropped off at the ferry for summer camp this week – you know they’re getting older when instead of being a student they are an assistant to the organisers! I’m sure he’ll have lots of fun. I think the work part of it is minimal.

It’s a beautiful evening and I must go outside on the deck and make the most of it before it gets dark. Happy crafting!

  1. I’m working on a ripple also. I wish I was using stylecraft but I’m using bernat softee chunky. It is for a birthday and I have to have it done soon.

  2. I’ve made a bulky ripple before. I do love projects that grow fast. Using DK is a challenge for me. Thanks for commenting.

  3. I started crochet with bulky yarn so using a 4mm hook feels so awkward but stylecraft is so lovely it is totally worth it. I’m making a star with my first time using stylecraft special DK.

  4. Dear One, I have followed your KNITS so I know you are home safe and sound. Busy at work and Sven off to camp. When can we be together for a belated Birthday picnic?
